It's not just Facebook that reunites long, lost friends. Thanks to We Love Soaps, I heard from my pal Louise Shaffer, with whom I'd lost touch a quarter century ago after SEARCH FOR TOMORROW was canceled. She'd seen some of my "Where Are They Now" vids on this site and was eager to reconnect. Not only was it wonderul to be back in contact with this funny, fiesty and oh-so-talented dame, but when I found out she had just come out with her fifth novel, I knew she was a perfect interview subject for our next WLS installment. So if you don't already know her work from soaps like WHERE THE HEART IS, THE EDGE OF NIGHT, two stints on SEARCH FOR TOMORROW or her Emmy-winning time as "Rae Woodard" on RYAN'S HOPE, then it is my pleasure to introduce you to my fab friend...Louise Shaffer!
